PFC James J. Harrelson
Birth: Jun. 16, 1988
Opelika
Lee County
Alabama, USA
Death: Jul. 17, 2007
Baghdad, Iraq

Army Pfc. James J. Harrelson, 19, of Dadeville, Ala.; assigned to the 2nd Battalion, 16th Infantry Regiment, 4th Infantry Brigade Combat Team, 1st Infantry Division, Fort Riley, Kan.; died July 17 in Baghdad of wounds sustained from an improvised explosive device. "He was always wanting to be a part of things and to help," said the Rev. Ken Griffith, Harrelson's former pastor who knew him as a child. Harrelson's family said anyone who met him almost instantly became his friend. "He didn't have an enemy," said Christopher Baker, Harrelson's older brother. His mother, Tammy Kinney, said her son did not yet have a specific plan for his future but one thing was for certain, whatever he did in his life, Lake Martin would be a part of it. Other than living on the lake, Harrelson also told his family several times that he hoped to one day be a father. "He loved babies," Kinney said. "He wanted a couple of his own." He also is survived by his father, Dennis Kinney.
